Ann Summers International

Artist Manager Ann Summers Dossena devotes herself to new challenges

Retiring from full career management and development of performing artists, I will continue to work in the arts as consultant, mentor, producer,  presenter, and as Founding Director of the International Resource Centre for Performing Artists. Read full press release.

The IRCPA is a forum for artists to exchange ideas, challenges, hone skills and meet colleagues. Current services focus on artists in the classical, early, jazz, opera, chamber, world, and experimental music fields.  Membership without fee is an opportunity for all to participate. Visit for more information.

After years of renting spaces, we must establish a much needed physical Centre where artists can come together from across Canada to share ideas, get help with auditions, be mentored, gain confidence, and to continue programs Encounters With Employers, and Career Moves workshops. Please visit for more details.

The National Opera Center in New York was created by the Opera America companies by pooling their resources.  A campaign for space and funds for the Toronto Centre has begun.  I sincerely hope everyone will join with me and the Board of Directors of the IRCPA to establish a Centre which would be open to all disciplines as well as the opera community.
